my little kicker

Friday, April 11, 2014

lately this little boy of mine has been anything but quiet. when he was smaller, i would be worried when i couldn't feel the movements in my belly. i would sit quietly and place my hand on my belly, and try to see if it was him coming 'aknocking. i think i felt him hiccup a lot. it wasn't until about two weeks ago that he started making his presence known. he's quite active, especially at 11pm and lately at 5am. such convenient times.

when he's moving, i sometimes like to take a peek at my bare belly and watch my belly move. it is the oddest thing in the world, like a little alien is inside of my belly. and i know it's not, but isn't it still the oddest thing in the world? according to my what to expect app, my little kicker is practicing his movements for when he gets here. i am so glad my coworker told me about that app. every morning, that is the first app i check. i get to see how many weeks i am, how big he is and how many pounds and then they have these daily tips as well that is super informative.

i've been reading all sorts of different materials on stretch marks. and though you can't completely prevent it as it's partly genetic, keeping your belly moisturized is a good starting point. so here is what my belly has been getting rubbed on it:
